ABOUT FOX HARB’R GOLF RESORT
In the late 90s, co-founder of the Tim Horton’s coffee empire, Ron Joyce, had a vision that would transform rural Nova Scotia and place the province on the map internationally. This led him to Fox Harbour and later, the completion of the Fox Harb’r Resort, where the Atlantic Ocean meets the rugged Northumberland shoreline. Here guests experience luxury with an award winning golf course of Graham Cooke’s design, a culinary tour-de-force featuring the best the Atlantic has to offer, manor style suites and townhouses accompanied by full service spa amenities, a world class clay shooting facility and marina. Guests also have access to Jetport, the onsite private landing strip and charter service which has welcomed the world to Nova Scotia over the past 15 years. Today Fox Harb’r is synonymous with maritime splendor having hosted everyone from pro-golfers to presidents, corporate leaders to celebrities for a unique Atlantic Canadian experience.
